Carl and the Passions/So Tough - Brother 1972
The classic Beach Boys sound is prevalent on "Marcella," which is one of Brian Wilson's contributions. The song is terrifically sung by Carl Wilson in his best "Darling" style.
The ballad "All this is That" written by Carl Wilson, Al Jardine and Mike Love is also quite nice.
Dennis Wilson has been praised for its contributions to the album, and although "Cuddle Up" without discussion is a fine composition, neither the song or the arrangement really suit "Beach Boys".
Only eight songs and a relatively short playing time.
Overall one of the group's weakest 1970s albums.
